I would make a pancake breakfast for my whole family! I would make cherry pancakes with a warm cherry compote. I would also make cherry stir sticks for the hot morning coffee!

Yum! After we'd eaten our fill, I'd pit and freeze the rest. We love cherries, last year 3lbs was gone in a few days.

Cherry Preserves!!!! My grandmother used to ship us out jars and jars once a year, as a kid. I have the recipe now and would make jars and jars of our own.

Oh my...the options are endless! I would certainly be pitting and freezing some for the winter months so I could make yummy smoothies. Pitted frozen cherries during these warm months make a wonderful cool snack especially on a Sunday afternoon outside while reading a good book under the umbrella. Then there are clafoutis to be made as well as cherry compote to go with fresh goat cheese. Trust me, nothing but the seeds and stems would go to the compost bin! Karla Roeseler

I would do what my grandma used to do...I'd make cherry pie and cherry preserves. Her next store neighbor had 2 cherry trees with a swing attached. She'd let us shake the cherries down from the tree so my grandma could make these delicious goodies!

Last year was my first in making freezer cherry jam. Unfortunately the first batch wasn't mixed well enough and didn't set up as tight as jam; however, I used it to cook with, for example, topped Halibut with it prior to baking, good on chicken with a little dijon mixed with it, also good on pork loin or chops. Would LOVE to duplicate that flavor again with YOUR cherries. Of course, I give my jam as gifts as well. To see the joy on people's faces is enough payment.

I would have to try out some new recipes and eat a LOT of them just as nature intended.

As a child growing up, my grandmother made cherry bounce...a sweet cordial that I was never allowed to make. I found a recipe for it on the internet and purchased a large jug during the winter just waiting for the cherries to come into season. I'd make that recipe and remember my childhood.

a case of cherries....well for sure I'd save some for eating straight away, I'd cook some with Agave Nectar to make pie filling, I'd stew some down with some organic beef broth and cracked peppercorns for a cherry sauce over a dry aged steak, make some homemade cherry ice cream anddddd maybe make a little cherry marmalade! Whew, I'm exhausted just makin' the list of what I'd do!

I would invite all my friends over for a four course cherry dinner. =] I've never cooked using cherries before but it would be the PERFECT opportunity to learn.

A case of Cherries is grand sight indeed. I would make some Jam for sure. maybe something spicy with home grown chiles from my garden. Cherry sorbet with a big bang from mint. in a flute with a splash of bubbly. Cherry salsa is always a hit, and cherry goat cheese stuff chicken from the grill with a little cherry glaze made with my Jam. A vegetarian Cherry sausage made with home made seitan would make my wife dance. a thai cherry consume would be another great lunch to serve to friends. Cherry poppyseed cake modified from a grandmothers recipe. and of course handfuls munched with a smile as I make my fingers red with pitting and pondering about what I just said. Please pick me for a this wonderful gift. I will post pictures and recipes of the great projects I make. Thank You!

What better way to take a summer break than a bowl of cherries, a good book, and a sunny spot?

Ive already made some but could always make more. I made my own version of maraschino cherries. I pitted them and then covered them with dry sherry. Stuck a vanilla been in the jar and a half cup of sugar. Now they can go sit in the dark cabinet awhile and become yummy so I can use it on my desserts.

If I win the case of cherries, I'll make a BIG cherry pie for my son's birthday (that's his favorite), and we'll enjoy the rest of the cherries fresh and cold as snacks!
